     Beginning is with Allah's personal name Ar'Reh'maan Who is The Fountain of Infinite Mercy       [Note] It should be remembered that it is not the written text/part/Ayah of سُورة [Chapter 38] and hence it is never numbered. For convenience of those readers who are already believers, this is traditionally printed since it is commanded in the Qur'aan to read/recite with the Name of Sustainer Lord, The Creator.

Sād [Fifteenth-centre/middle letter of the 29 letters of Arabic Alphabet,  with ancillary glyph/prolongation sign/mark which extends/stretches the sound value of the letter to which it is added. Prolongation sign/mark is found whenever the following word begins with still letter and here Sād ending with sound of still "Daal" in pronunciation. As a numeral, it denotes 90-reflecting the entire range from 0 to 9. Interestingly its head part is used in Grand Qur'aan as a sign to suggest linkage in recitation]

[Read with 25:29]o

and swearing is by the Qur'aan, its peculiarity is that it is the holder/container of the Admonishment/ Reminder/Reiteration [of all that was sent earlier-a linkage]. [38:01]

[Read in conjunction 2:137,176;22:53;41:52]

Nay, their utterances are false, the fact of the matter is that those who have deliberately refused to accept [Grand Qur'aan] they are in the perception of holding power/control/status quo and in retaining/maintaining a separate identity/entity [as against the Qur'aan that intends to link the humanity as a homogenous unit]. [38:02]

[Similar pronouncement in 19:74,98]

And many of civilizations before them in human history We have annihilated;

[Read with 6:158;10:91;32:29;40:85]o

whereupon they called [declaring themselves believers] and that turning was no escape/of benefit at that point in time. [38:03]

[Same information in 50:02; read with 7:63,69;10:02]

And they expressed it unaccustomed/strange to people that a Warner should have come to them from amongst themselves


and the deniers/non believers/elite of society said to people, "This is an illusionist liar. [38:04]

Has he made/declared various numerous iela'aha as Only One Iela'aha;

[Same information in 50:02]o

indeed this is certainly a strange thing" [38:05]

And the leaders among them made themselves walk away, imperatively saying to people, "Walk/ disperse you people away, and you people remain constantly satisfied upon your various iela'aha


Certainly this is definitely a thing which is intended and desired to be done. [38:06]

We have never heard the like of this in the earlier religious system and practices;


this is nothing but a made-up tale! [38:07]

[Read with 54:25]

What is this! has the Reminder/Admonition [Qur'aan] sent to him from amongst us all?"  

Nay, in fact they are in doubt/skepticism about My Message/Admonition/Reminder-Qur'aan.


Nay, in fact they have not yet been made to taste My chastisement. [38:08]


[Read with 52:37]

[they command people as if] Are with them the treasures of the Mercy of your Sustainer Lord, the Dominantly All Pervasive and the Bestower, [38:09]

or is it for them the dominion of the Skies and the Earth and that which is in between two of them,


thereby [to roam in their dominion] they should make themselves ascend by specific means. [38:10]

[Read with 54:45]

[they have not yet been made to taste chastisement-38:08] They are the group who at that point in time will be the crinkly suppressed part of the confederations [of earlier times].  [38:11]

[Read with 40:05]

Before them publicly contradicted the people of the nation of Noah [alai'his'slaam], and of Aad and Fir'aoun, who were the holder of deeply entrenched vested interests; [38:12]

and Sa'mued, and the nation of Luet [alai'his'slaam] and the residents of "Al-Aikate";


they were the confederations [of earlier times as referred in 38:11][38:13]


They all did but publicly contradicted the Messengers whereupon the criminal cognizance for awarding them My punishment became incumbent. [38:14]


And these people [present day confederates] wait nothing except a Big/mighty Bang; for which there will be no gap/interval [of ease, wave after wave of sound, breaking everything]. [38:15]


And they said: "Our Lord! hasten to us our share of punishment before the Day of Account!" [38:16]

[Same advice in  20:130;50:39;73:10]

You , the Messenger [Sal'lallaa'hoalaih'wa'salam] remain coolly perseverant upon what they say;

 and you mention to people about Our servant Dawood [alai'his'slaam], the holder of great powers/ kingdom, [for comparative study of people holding power and affluence];

[Same information in same words in 38:30,44]o

indeed he was ever mindful/heedfully returning [to Allah]. [38:17]


It is a fact that We had subjected the mountains, they along with him echoed the repetitive praises [of Allah] in the evening and after the Sunrise; [38:18]

 and the birds assembled; they all for Him/Allah were inclined. [38:19]

And We had firmly strengthened his dominion and We had granted him wisdom and the ability of eloquent oratory. [38:20]

And has the news of disputants reached to you when they people at their own climbed on to the private chamber, [38:21]

when they entered on to Da'wood [alai'his'slaam] thereat he felt cautiously afraid from them [for obvious reason that many people had broken all the security barriers unto the King's privacy]

They said, "Do not feel cautious;

two disputant parties, some of us have done wrong upon others, therefore, you decide the matter between us on principle of equity and justice without favour or fear


and you guide us on the straight path. [38:22]

Indeed this is my brother, for him are ninety-nine ewe and for me there is only one ewe


whereupon/for which reason he said, "you entrust her to me" and he overpowered me in the speech"  [38:23]

He/Da'wood [alai'his'slaam] said, "He has certainly done injustice by asking your ewe towards his ewes

and certainly many amongst the partners are some who definitely oppress the other;

except those who accepted/believed and conducted righteous acts and they are in small number".


And Da'wood [alai'his'slaam] thought positively [by this incident since the matter stated by those men could never warrant entering the Palace in such illegal risky manner] that only We had subjected him to irked trial whereupon he sought for himself the forgiveness of his Sustainer Lord and went down bowing and he turned. [38:24] [Please prostrate and get near to the Sustainer Lord of Worlds]

Therefore We overlooked this [administrative lapse] for him;

[Same pronouncement in same words for his son, complete verse 38:40]o

and certainly for him with Us is near access and par excellence abode of return [and he was reminded];  [38:25]

"O Da'wood [alai'his'slaam] indeed We have appointed you the Self Governing Ruler in the country

therefore decide and adjudge amongst people on principle of justice and equity,

and [advise everyone] do not let anyone make you follow the desire/conjectural statement which may result in making you forgetful of the Path of Allah.

Indeed those who forgetfully neglect the Path of Allah


for them is [in wait] severe punishment for the reason that they forgot the Day of Accountability.  [38:26]
